According to Travis Sawchik, the Pittsburgh Pirates will place starting pitcher Charlie Morton on the disabled list as he continues to recover from his September hip surgery and Vance Worley will take his spot in the rotation. Morton pitched against the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday afternoon and had no command on his pitches, while also sitting high 80’s with his fastball. He walked five batters, hit two, threw two wild pitches and gave up six runs in 1.2 innings. Morton threw 70 pitches, with just 31 going for strikes. Worley pitched a scoreless inning in relief. The Pirates made the move official shortly after the report.
Charlie Morton (hip) is headed to DL. Vance Worley will take place in rotation, per Hurdle
